Sorry, it looks like I'm in trivia mode.

What three songs were last played live by the Grateful Dead over 29 years after the boys first recorded them in the studio? One of the three definitely qualifies, and the other two probably do.

RULES: From memory, no databases or internet searches. Partial answers okay.

Would one of them be Morning Dew?

No, but Morning Dew is one of two other songs that were last played live by the Grateful Dead over 28 years after the boys first recorded them in the studio. Morning Dew was recorded in January 1967, and last played live on 6-21-95. The other was Good Morning Little Schoolgirl. Beat it on Down the Line was last performed live on 10-3-94 and so didn't quite make it.

Promised?
NFA?

I believe they were on the the Rare Cuts release from early '66.

Good point about those two. I had meant recorded in the studio and released commercially (otherwise who knows what other songs they may have noodled out in the studio--JBG?), but in fairness I didn't say that. So yes on both counts, and you were right earlier about I Know You Rider (recorded in November 1965 by The Emergency Crew, a.k.a. The Warlocks) and Don't Ease Me In (recorded June 1966). Just one more not identified yet.

Okay, so I'm pretty sure the complete answer is:

I Know You Rider
Don't Ease Me In
Cold Rain and Snow

We have a winner! Cold Rain and Snow was recorded in the same 6-66 sessions as Don't Ease Me In.

I'd suggest that it was ironic that Cold Rain and Snow was the last one you got, but of course you pointed out to me earlier that your moniker comes from another song altogether.
